  • Chili powder- ½ tsp
  • Cumin powder- ½ tsp
  • Coriander powder- ½ tsp
  • Salt- a few pinches
For making stir fry
  • Oil- 2 tbsp
  • Whole cardamom- 2
  • Whole cloves- 2
  • Whole cinnamon- 2 inch slice
  • Bay leaves- 2
  • Onion, chopped- 3
  • Curry leaves- 1 sprig
  • Ginger garlic paste- ½ tbsp
  • Shredded carrot- 1
  • Shredded green pepper- 1
  • Turmeric powder- ⅛ tsp
  • Chili powder- 1 tsp

  1. In a bowl, combine the chicken with the above mentioned ingredients "to marinate the chicken" and keep aside for 15 minutes.
  2. Place a non-stick pan over medium heat, when the pan turns hot add oil.
  3. Add whole cardamom, cloves, cinnamon and bay leaves to hot oil and saute for a few seconds.
  4. Add onions and curry leaves, season with salt and cook the onions till they turn translucent.
  5. Add ginger-garlic paste, combine well and cook till onions turn golden in color.
  6. Add the marinated chicken, combine well and cook covered till chicken has almost cooked.
  7. Add turmeric powder, chili powder, coriander powder, fennel powder and salt to taste. Combine well.
  8. Add shredded carrot and green pepper. I shredded in a food processor using the shred blade. Or use a grater and grate the carrot and green pepper. Tastes better by using shredded carrot and green pepper.
  9. Combine well and let the veggies cook well.
  10. Turn the heat to high and stir fry till the chicken and the veggies turn golden brown. Tastes delicious when caramelized.
  11. Have a taste and add more salt if needed or chili powder for more spice.
  12. Remove the pan from the heat, keep covered for sometime.
  13. This can be served with folded paratha, chapati or poori.
